VOSS Urea Quality Sensor a “Top 10 New Product” of 2016
December 21, 2016
OEM Off-HighwayTM magazine has recognized VOSS Automotive, Inc.’s, in-line urea quality sensor among the Top 10 New Products for 2016. And it delivers top results.
Designed for diesel engine selective catalytic reduction (SCR) after-treatment systems, the VOSS in-line urea quality sensor provides precise diagnostic feedback. It’s capable of detecting variances in urea concentration as small as +/- 2 percent (at a concentration range of 20 to 40 percent, or +/- 3 percent at a concentration range of 10 to 20 percent), and it can operate at temperatures between -8°C to +50°C. It’s also available for 12V and 24V electrical systems.
These specifications, alone, make the VOSS in-line urea quality sensor unique, but there’s even more to the design. Its electrically heated connection system ensures consistent cold weather performance, and it can be adjusted to meet specific customer requirements for DEF lines (i.e.: 46-minute defrost time at -30°C). Additionally, single edge nibble transmission (SENT)/local interconnect network (LIN) communication protocol is standard, and controller area network (CAN) communication is possible.
VOSS Automotive, GmbH, in collaboration with Eltek Group, designed the urea quality sensor in 2016 to meet industry and customer demands for optimal fluid management systems and minimized NOx emissions.
“Based on years of field experience and market feedback, we optimized existing in-line technology to meet customers’ needs and address their concerns,” said Daniel Wenzel, SCR System Engineer, VOSS Automotive, GmbH. “With the integration of sensor technology, we designed intelligent SCR lines that are capable of more than just conveying fluid”
Christian Zwillus, Electrical Engineer, VOSS Automotive, GmbH, added, “Using VOSS heating technology for DEF lines, the in-line urea quality sensor provides an accurate, defined defrost performance.”
“This is a testament to how innovative and forward-thinking our engineering and design teams truly are,” said Eduardo Vultorius. “They’re aware of industry trends, and the needs of our customers, and they deliver every day.”
